    I had a friend there who I figure must have had a degree of high autism. In fact most of my friends there were kind of strange. I had a huge crush on a really intelligent blond who was doing biology and psychology. As you ask these days I am very isolated. I was recently invited to my former lecturer's retirement day. I wrote him a very nice letter but didn't go. The weather was at the time bad and it was a fair distance to travel.

    To be fair, there isn't really any treatment for AS/ASD, all you can do is try to find coping mechanisms, I would imagine you have done as well as you can in that regard. I wasn't diagnosed until I was an adult either for the same reason as you. I also recently got diagnosed with ADHD, which if anything has a bigger impact on my dysfunction but at least there are treatment options for that.

    Good question. I saw it before but didn't have time to answer it. I decided to try answering it now. I don't like to see autism as disability, although sometimes the anxiety I experience can be disabilitating and cause me to miss out on opportunities. Sometimes I can push through and that is a good feeling but other times I don't. To people I don't know well, I am afraid to mention autism in case people prejudge me based on that. If I say anything, I say I get anxiety because I feel most people can understand anxiety to a some degree at least. When I was first diagnosed at 16, I didn't know if I really had it or not as a lot of the info on the web was more male orientated and I didn't always identify as strongly. I have a better understanding now.

    I get frustrated when people don't get what I am talking about and this can result in me being irritable or snappy. My mum is very illogical and I get really frustrated with her. I feel like I have to explain things that are obvious and shouldn't need explaining.
